    ....got stung by the 'WASZP'?..OD foiler...

    You don't need much room to quickly roll a boat over unless you leave it there all day, a small carpark sounds like heaps of room.

    I thought it read you don't need to tip it on land you tip it in shallow water to take off the trolley if its rough otherwise you just slide it off. If you have no room to roll over your boat on land occasionally your club is unusual.Personally I think one of the good attributes of the moth is you can rig it completely on its side onshore and just carry it in, no need to worry about trolley's, fixed rudders or retaining pins. I admit it's only a few steps to deep water but I can't be the only one

    So here is the key question. What happens if you sail your Moth with the wand on the best settings for steep waves when there are no steep waves? I have sailed a Moth with all the toys and I believe that even if you have the settings for steep waves in flat water and less wind, you still foil. The situation is that you don't go as fast as you would do if you are on the right settings. Or am I wrong? I agree. No big difference in flattish water. For me the biggest advantage of having wand or gearing settings is when going upwind in steep waves. If you can use a longer wand or less gearing than what you need for the downwind, the upwind ride is a lot easier and more enjoyable,because you're not bouncing all over the place. You will have more trouble getting out of the water in marginal conditions which was a stated aim. Maybe the high lift profile will overcome this. I wonder how much onshore adjustment is available as you'd think there would be some to make up for manufacturing tolorences etc. Certainly cut down on the strings but I'd be surprised if they can do away with any form of rha or adjustable wand without tagging waves when trying to go uphill. The ride height looks low in the pictures with a short wand and possibly the fast point a way back.

    There was a foiling laser on the beach at Sorrento, some pointed and laughed but most people ignored it. I do wonder if the wasp may suffer the same fate after all if you can afford a new one you can probably afford a 2nd hand m2. Hopefully I'm wrong and they sell heaps
